KATY, Texas — A Katy family whose mosque was hit by bullets earlier this month said someone also fired about 15 shots at their home.
Investigators with the Harris County Pct. 5 Constable’s Office said around 10 p.m. Sunday, someone fired multiple shots from behind the family’s residence in the 1900 block of Emerald Green Drive. They said it appears the shots were fired from over their fence and struck the house. No one was injured.
Investigators said the victims are Muslim-Americans who attend a mosque about 3 miles away. That mosque was also struck by bullets on Jan. 14.
Pct. 5 Constable Ted Heap said there was a drive-by shooting at the same home on Dec. 25, 2018. No one was injured in that incident.
Pct. 5, which is also working with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office and FBI, is looking into whether these shootings could be possible hate crimes.
